Brown and Dandurand both sentenced to life in prison
HONOLULU, HI – Stephen Brown, 29, and Hailey Dandurand, 26, both received sentences in Honolulu Circuit Court yesterday that include life in prison with the possibility of parole for murdering Telma Boinville on December 7, 2017.
Boinville had a part-time job cleaning homes including a home on Ke Iki Road in Pupukea on O‛ahu’s North Shore. Boinville and her then eight-year-old daughter stopped at the home, and when Boinville went inside she found Brown and Dandurand burglarizing the home. Brown and Dandurand tied up and killed Boinville, then tied up her daughter and left the scene in Boinville’s truck. They were arrested in Mililani several hours later.
Brown was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole for Murder in the Second Degree. He was also sentenced to 20 years in prison for Kidnapping, an extended term of 20 years in prison for Burglary in the First Degree, and 30 days in jail for Criminal Property Damage in the Fourth Degree. The sentences will be served consecutively.
Dandurand was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole for Murder in the Second Degree and a separate extended term of life in prison with the possibility of parole for Kidnapping. She was also sentenced to an extended term of 20 years in prison for Burglary in the First Degree, an extended term of 10 years in prison for Unauthorized Possession of Confidential Personal Information, and a year in prison for Unauthorized Entry into Motor Vehicle in the Second Degree. The sentences for Murder in the Second Degree, Kidnapping, and Burglary in the First Degree were ordered to run consecutively with each other. The sentences for Unauthorized Entry into Motor Vehicle in the Second Degree and Unauthorized Possession of Confidential Personal Information were ordered to run concurrently with the consecutive term sentences for the other offenses.
“These lengthy sentences are deserved. Mr. Brown and Miss Dandurand committed horrific crimes and will now do significant time in prison,” said Prosecuting Attorney Steve Alm.
“We are appreciative the judge recognized the seriousness of these crimes and ordered the sentences to be served consecutively. We are grateful to the jury that found the defendants guilty. We thank HPD for gathering the evidence needed to prove them guilty. We also thank members of the public who helped the police track down the suspects. And we are inspired by the courage of Telma Boinville’s daughter who provided key testimony at Brown’s trial and again at Dandurand’s trial,” Alm said.
Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Scott Bell successfully prosecuted both Dandurand and Brown.
